NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Scientists say they may have identified a new member of the human family tree after decoding DNA from an unidentified species that lived in Siberia an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 years ago.
Researchers aren't ready to claim it is a new species yet and say they need to do more analysis first.
But the genetic material doesn't match DNA from our own species or form Neanderthals. Actually, it appears the Siberian species started to evolve away from modern humans and Neanderthals about a million years ago.
